Excellent idea, Camera Labs team!
What would be interesting points to explore?
- a collection of links to famous sports/action photographers
- a discussion about the benefit of having a big lens with a wide aperture vs cranking up the ISO of the camera body
- exchanging ideas and experiences on the protection of your equipment against the elements (eps. water) , when you shoot under bad conditions or try to capture some action in/on/under water (like sailing/surfing/swimming/diving) (b.t.w. there is some website dedicated to diving: http://wetpixel.com/ )
- reports from people about the ability of their automatic focus systems under fast moving action oriented conditions (another Canon vs Nikon vs Sony debate :twisted: )

I'd love to see these discussions started...

You're very welcome to show/link your photos here.
When you do, please follow these hints/tips:
1. Place your photos somewhere (like flickr, or your own website). You cannot store pictures at the Camera labs website!
2. If you just want to link to your pics, that's easy! Use the following scheme:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/your-name/937299495/][u]your-descriptive-text[/u][/url]
or more simple [url=link2pic][u]text[/u][/url]
3. If you want your photo to be displayed in your post with a link to the original, replace the descriptive text by the address for your thumbnail like this:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/your-name/937299495/][img]http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1263/937299495_d694ab84a1_m.jpg[/img][/url]
or more simple [url=link2web][img]link2thumbnail[/img][/url]

Please keep your thumbnails reasonable (max. 1024 pix on each side). Lager thumbnails will be deleted without further warning!

I am into action photography (wild life and sports) and wish to purchase a fixed lens bridge camera:
1) Which sensor size and pixel count would be better?
2) Would a smaller zoom (e.g. x24) with a larger aperture (e.g. f2.8) throughout the zoom range be better than a larger zoom (e.g. x 50) with a smaller aperture that is not the same throughout the zoom range (e.g. f/3.4W; f/6.5T)?

Depends on how far away you are from the subject (and how large the subject is) and how much light there is. (Also, actual (35mm equivalent) focal lengths would be much more helpful than the number of times multiple. e.g. 1mm-50mm is 50X but would probably not be sufficient for most sports or wildlife.)

So like Carlos said, if you have a few actual cameras (from different manufacturers) in mind, feel free to post another question with more specifics. i.e. which cameras, which sports, and which wildlife?
